This is my first lick of the week. In this lesson I'm going to show you a Dorian Fusion Lick.
I hope you'll enjoy it.
Here we have a free lick taken from the “Dragon’s Fury” solo study, based around the neo-classical rock/metal style. This style gained popularity from the groundbreaking release of Yngwie Malmsteen’s 1984 debut album Rising Force, born from Yngwie’s unique blend of influences, combining classical harmonies and melodies with violin virtuoso Nicolo Paganini and composer J.S Bach cited as influences, alongside the high energy presentation of seventies rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Uli Jon Roth and Ritchie Blackmore.
This lick is taken from my lesson “Rock phrasing and key modulations - Rambler solo”. With a modulation from D Dorian to F# Lydian, it features some cool alternate picking and sweeping ideas.
Hi there. Our old visitors probably remember that we used to make downloadable bundle every time we collect 10 new licks. At that time free guitar lesson section on our Marketplace didn't exist so we used to leave 10 licks bundle on our blog in one huge zip file. It now makes more sense to have a place where you can always come back to choose and download plenty of free stuff. If you've missed any of these, the links are here. Enjoy!
Here we have a free lick taken from the On the Beach solo study, based around the hard-rock style. This style gained popularity from the late 1970’s with Eddie Van Halen’s groundbreaking debut album Van Halen, released in 1978 and featuring the legendary showcase Eruption. The style is characterised by choppy sounding riffs interspersed with flashy fills and flamboyant lead playing, often showcasing cutting edge techniques mixed in with a blues/rock-based core vocabulary.
